A socca is a thin pancake crepe type thing from italy, made from chickpea flour, olive oil and water. Easy, dairy and gluten free. I decided to make a slightly sweet chocolate socca that could be eaten for breakfast or dessert. I don't have a name for it yet. Suggestions?
These aren't very sweet. You can add more sugar if you like but I think these are really all about the fillings. Fruit and plain yogurt (pictured) if you're being good. Whipped cream, chocolate shavings and nutella if you're being bad. It really depends if you're having these as dessert or breakfast. I suspect nutella, banana, strawberries and whipped cream would be a winning combination.
1/2 cup chickpea flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon agave
1/2 cup water
Whisk together all ingredients. Set aside for a few minutes while you get your fillings together. Heat a lightly oiled 8 inch non stick skillet over medium low heat. Pour 1/4 of the batter onto skillet, tilting skillet so batter evenly coats the surface. Cook about 3 minutes on each side. Turn down heat as needed. Repeat 3 more times with remaining batter. Serve warm with fillings.
Some filling ideas: jam, chocolate syrup, fresh fruit, stewed fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, nutella, whipped cream, yogurt, banana...
